Stephen from Kenya on Today
When we met Stephen today, the first thing he did was give us a very big and beautiful smile. He couldn’t say it, but we are very sure it meant he had missed us a lot! We were very happy to see him and hear all about the good things happening in his life. “He has added weight in the past few weeks, and we are happy about it. Sometimes I get very tired when I carry him for long,” the mother told us. Stephen is doing well, he will continue wearing his braces for twenty-three hours a day, and we will see him again in a few weeks. Please thank God with us for all the positive things that are happening to the kids who we serve.

Natasha from Kenya on Today
“She’s a kicker,” Constance told us. It’s true! When Natasha needs her braces put on, she moves her little feet around, making it a bit harder for her mama to put her braces on. “I usually do it when she’s asleep,” Constance told us later. Natasha’s little foot that has been treated for clubfoot isn’t sitting the best in her brace, but one of our physical therapists taught Constance a trick. With practice, hopefully she’ll get Natasha’s foot to sit more proper in her brace. Natasha is such a beautiful little thing, and she shared her smiles with us today, which just adds to her beauty! we’re so excited to see her again on November 27th. Please pray for Constance as she helps Natasha’s foot sit proper in her brace!

Antony from Kenya on Today
“We’re waiting for his father (stepdad),” Felister told us this morning. “So he can carry our things.” Antony got to go home today! And we’re so thankful to learn that although his parents divorced, his mother remarried and isn’t all alone in raising her children. Last week, Felister had talked of Antony’s hands and was wondering what could be done for them. We asked this morning if she’d asked a doctor, and she said she had. We followed up with our doctor, and he told us that Antony would only have surgery on his hands if it would be helpful to him. We’ll let him heal from this surgery and then see if another one is viable. Until we see Antony on November 29th, please be praying for his healing, strength for Felister as she cares for him, and future wisdom for our doctors to know how to care for him best!

Jennifer from Kenya on Oct 19, 2017
“She wants you to take her photo,” Jackline told us of Jennifer. Maybe now that Jennifer is back, she feels better and actually wants her photo taken more than before! Jennifer has a special cast on, so she needs to have it removed and replaced in theatre and also have an x-ray taken. Tomorrow is Heroes’ Day in Kenya. Please pray that CURE can be a hero for Jennifer and give her good news regarding her healing! Thank you for the part you play in that through your prayers and support!

“He’s hungry,” Felister told us of Antony today. Unfortunately, Antony couldn’t eat because he was waiting to go to theatre to have his cast changed. Felister is so concerned for her son. Because of Antony’s cerebral palsy, he has some health struggles, including his eyes not wanting to focus and also his hands not being very useable. Felister was curious about both of these, and had asked our doctor about one or both of these. She’s such a dedicated mama, and we’re thankful Antony has her by his side! Tomorrow is Heroes' Day in Kenya, and we think Felister is a hero!

Eugene from Kenya on Oct 19, 2017
Eugene continues to have an interest in our camera, especially the actual taking of the photos. We hardly have time to take his photo because he wants to take photos himself! Eugene had a cast change today, so we’re hoping he’ll be squared away to go home tomorrow on Heroes Day (in Kenya)! We hope that in at least a small way and with your support that CURE played a part in being Eugene’s hero and helping him walk better!

Nivan from Kenya on Oct 18, 2017
Nivan and Brenda spent a good part of their day with us at CURE today, but what’s great is that they got to go home, too! The last time Nivan came for a checkup at CURE, he had to be readmitted to CURE for more wound care. This time, he came and left on the same day. His wound by his knee is looking great, and he had his pins removed today. One of the most traumatic parts of his day was getting his morphine shot before he got his wounds cleaned and pins removed. Our guy has got some feistiness in him, and he was not okay with getting a shot. It took probably at least five minutes of flailures and protests from Nivan and about fifteen seconds to actually give him his shot. He was better after this and played phone games while the nurses worked. Brenda told us, “God has answered my prayer! I prayed that it would be good.” Please praise God with us and Brenda that it is good! We’ll catch up again with these two next Wednesday.

Dylan from Kenya on Oct 18, 2017
Dylan kind of caught us by surprise today when we retrieved his file. We didn’t realize he was to come back to CURE today, but he was actually scheduled to come. He was being silly as usual today as we hung out with him in the exam room. He’s really a blast to be around! His wound is continuing to heal, and once it heals, he’ll need another surgery on his other hip. He’s scheduled to come back to CURE on November 15th, and from there we’ll hopefully know when surgery number two can happen. Please pray it’s soon so we can get this guy farther down the road to healing and, Lord willing, to better mobility!

Antony from Kenya on Oct 18, 2017
Antony is a calm boy. He spent most his time in bed as his condition limits him from walking and sitting. It’s hard because he can’t even play with other kids in the ward or playroom, but his mother stays on a close look, watching out for him. She was trying to position him and feed him, although he didn’t have a good appetite most likely because he was in pain. He will be re-casted tomorrow, and we hope that he will have a smooth rest of his recovery. Let’s continue to pray for his healing process!

Eugene from Kenya on Oct 18, 2017
Eugene ended up having a bit of a rough day yesterday, but he was not as bad today. The night was good, but he kept complaining as his mother informed us. The split cast had not been removed yet but is scheduled to be removed and re-casted tomorrow. Let's continue to pray for this boy!

Eugene was miserable at night, so he had to have his cast split early this morning. When we saw him this morning, though, he was happy and made his cheeks big for us and was goofy. He wanted to take photos with our camera too, so we let him. Please pray that Eugene won’t have to wait too long to get a new cast so he can head home and keep sharing his silly antics with others!

Antony from Kenya on Oct 17, 2017
It took some time to get Antony settled this morning. “He’s been sleeping a lot,” Felister told us. She wanted him to sit up, so between her and us and nurse Purity, we got him sitting up. The poor guy had to have one of his casts split this morning because of discomfort, and one of our plaster tech’s was going to split the other one as well. Antony seemed okay this morning even before the second cast was split. We’re thankful to God for that! Please pray for Antony’s speedy healing and no more discomfort for him!

Nivan from Kenya on Oct 16, 2017
We're so sorry we didn't keep you better informed of Nivan's progress, friends! He was discharged after his last little trip to the theatre, and we're happy to announce that he comes back for a checkup this Wednesday. Please pray that when he comes, his wound would look better and that he won't have to be re-admitted to the hospital like the last time he came for checkup. Thank you for your continued prayers!

Antony was admitted yesterday and had his clubfoot surgery today. The surgery was successful and Antony relaxed in his bed as his mother was on close look. The ward devotions were happening when we went to capture a photo of Antony this afternoon. Please pray that Antony and his mama see God through us at CURE! We will continue to update you on Antony's progress. Your prayers and words of encouragement are welcomed and very effective. Blessings!

Eugene from Kenya on Oct 16, 2017
We made a special friend this morning, and his name is Eugene. We met him at the ward, and then had some quality time together before he went to the theatre. He wasn’t so sure about his name band that had been taped on his arm, but we distracted him with peek-a-boos and sillies. As we were leaving the theatre, his mom told us, “He wants you to stay!” So, we did. We played together some more, and Eugene kept talking to us with words we couldn’t understand. Please be praying for him as he recovers!

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
